clichy at the new house is in the country's interest in. a constructive life i would like to note that russia is akin to this kind of the operation especially the creation of course many issues were addressed during the ac and working sessions of for example the issues of natural disasters which of course this region is specifically prone to specifically hurricanes tsunamis underwater explosions all those things this region suffers from them quite severely and the russian president expressed his condolences to the people of thailand which of course are at the moment suffering from that face so dealing with natural calamities has been on the agenda for the a c. and summit leaders today also various other issues like economic cooperation global security dealing with the aftermath of the global financial crisis all those issues were discussed too much satisfaction it seems from the a region is a very attractive one primarily because it has
a lot of growing economically growing countries china of course is one of russia's main partners and is of course a part of bric brazil russia india and china says some experts say one of the strongest emerging economies in the world today in those boys to deal with the effects of the global financial crisis a lot better than the so-called economic giants like the united kingdom the united states and the european union so how is a lot of economic potential for russia to be involved with this region of course globalization has also meant that there are a lot of other interests with countries separately that make up the asia pacific region not just the a c. on or a pad group as a whole and specifically of course russia and vietnam have a very long history together of the russian president said in an article published in the local newspaper the russian stood by the vietnamese as they fought for their independence and they will continue just. down by the get means as
a vietnam emerges as a strong economy into the twenty first century world arena still a lot of interest a lot of financial benefits and that is what leaders and russia perhaps is looking for here in hanoi. and on the sidelines of that summit moscow and washington involved to continue talks on the u.s. missile defense shield program and new european security architecture russian foreign minister sergei lavrov met with the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton but she also praised the successful joint anti drug operation in afghanistan and agreed to go on with the fight against the narcotics threat on thursday russian and u.s. special forces conducted their first ever major joint operation against drug producers in their region they destroyed a full albums and seized almost a ton of heroin. and former u.s. drug policy spokesman robert wiener says it's a shame washington couldn't come around to the view of eradication until russia
forced it to act. unfortunate that it has taken this long to really come together with you there's going to reluctance in the united states to even go after the drug trade in afghanistan it's been a policy of the military to let it go and that's tragic and it's unbelievable to me that it took russia to tell the united states where the drug labs were when we have one hundred thousand troops we spent eighty billion dollars on intelligence we have one hundred thousand additional contractors so we had to know were crawling all over every inch of that country but it took you to in fact to out the united states to force us and to embarrass us to cooperate with you to stop the drug trade which is in the interest of the entire world including the united states you are with still ahead for you this hour put to the test. the high ranking officials of the participants of the exhibition the child to get. the some of the specialized
military equipment like this heavily on the report from the state of the art military hardware exhibition underway just outside. a new spy scandal has flared up between georgia and russia after reports that twenty people have been caught allegedly spying for moscow although many experts say this could just be a p.r. stunt by tbilisi peter all of a know more on this and joins us live from moscow so peter what do we know about the case of the states can you can you bring us up to date please. what we know at the moment is on friday the reuters news agency put out a report that said twenty people have been arrested in georgia were accused of trying to set up a spy ring for moscow. we still haven't heard anything from the georgian side from they say so far as to say whether they confirm or deny that this is happening they've said they will issue a news conference later on what we have heard is some comments from the russian side russian politicians saying that there is no need for russia to have
a spy ring in georgia it would be a waste of resources. and suggesting that perhaps these people who have been arrested could be the police using these they spy a cover up story to try and take the opposition political opposition away from the streets of georgia. for them what. this looks like another of george's internal political battles in russia is used as the boogie man as usual russia doesn't need a spy network in georgia it would be waste of resources russian officials can get all the information in georgia without leaving their desks there's a massive georgian john spirit here in russia was strong toys to home loans so there's absolutely no need for any old spying methods to gather intelligence it's obviously nothing more than part of george's internal policies. but it's not just the politicians that have been having a say in this political analysts as well suggesting that this could be the just the further modulation of somebody that's read far too many spy novels it's also being
brought up the comparisons between this and the the situation we saw earlier this year in the united states there wasn't so much spy saga as it was a well a bit of an embarrassment really where ended up with a little less charges for espionage and a lot more glossy magazine cover sheets on a chapman with us case. it's can be compared to the scandal that took place in summer between russia and the united states in fact there was practically nothing in substance in it but as a media tool as a lever that may be useful i really cannot imagine a world moscow can undertake now because the official relations between russia and georgia are not zero they are below zero they are minus and there to only means there that will take another time more time for them to improve . well peter as we were just hearing that the relations between georgia and russia
have been strained for. quite some time they're not doing very well just take us back if you will remind us how did they sour in the first place. where the leisure ship between the two countries has suffered since because he came to office in georgia in two thousand and six or so for russian military personnel arrested accused of espionage that ended up resulting in transport in his between the two countries being temporarily suspended their relationship really hit its lowest ebb in two thousand and eight when georgian aggression against the the south the city and people saw russian troops moving into the region and a conflict taking place in august of that year and then this year in march of two thousand and ten we saw three people handed down quite lengthy prison sentences to russians and one georgian for spying here in russia. all right r.t. spitter all of them live for us and moscow thank you. are for more details on this now we're joined by
a political analyst from moscow state university good to see you so let's just get to the point here should the story be taken seriously where you say that the story should be taken into consideration yet to the day can now existing over they stop it the official relationships i mean diplomatic relationship between georgian moscow east broken we can't say for sure whether it's true or not we're waiting for official reaction but let me just give you some numbers when a chain of twenty well prepared spice one spy is being prepared for ten years so can we imagine that they had the georgian officials have cleared up a chain of twenty well prepared. georgians or russians so it's it's hard to imagine it's not the time to read capella now in two thousand and six georgia arrested four high ranking russian officers accusing them of being spies i'm also called that deliberate provocation could we just be seeing a repeat of that kind of event it was a deliberate provocation but it was in two thousand and six now we're living in two
thousand and ten there was a war in two thousand and eight now we're living in quite a different political so we're already it's like a temple of russert white blank so we have clarified all our. problems with you we're paying you are seeing now we have clear wide what is security and we have launched the real it would be loaded with us in russia so i don't think that these are we can be taken seriously and yet it's not number one on the agenda between russia and you are you we are all russian us or another georgian leadership is known for the harsh repression of political dissenters do you think this could just be a political process where dissenters are being labeled as spies well first of all mr saakashvili is well known for chewing his tie but he has some real some serious problems with. the actions of road system that is going to be taken in november he's personal reading political reading of the personal approval is less than fifty percent about eighty percent of georgians say they want to have its eternity with
russia to put it in plain english they want good relations with russia so he needs to find any approval the easiest way is to fire an enemy somewhere within now this summer we saw the u.s. exposing eleven russian spies it made international headlines it was a big hit in the mass media could this just be a p.r. stunt by georgia based on the u.s. experience. as you if you ask me i will say that it looks like it p.r. stunt mr saakashvili is in nice people he knows how to put all the things artistically we know how he was or. running from the russian airplanes how he was soon tired he likes of these artistic gestures and i don't think there is no. comparison between the story of eleven spies in us or these twenty alleged spies in georgia it's quite two different stories because these are two quite different
levels of relationship between russian u.s. and russia and georgia alexy order out of political analyst from moscow state university thank you so much. could a comedian in america have more power than the president the majority of voters on an online men's magazine certainly seem to think so they selected john stewart as the most influential man of the year in the u.s. as artie's understands you're going to reports this saturday the funnyman will see if his popularity translates into political action. i think when it's an bots get in the way of political promises were promised during the campaign change of the bully been right it wasn't a change of them believe in eighteen months when the media war was over with fear and anger. and the minds of a population are attacked with misinformation there's such a lack of truth on the airwaves were being dumbed down by the news business who are
americans left to trust according to a poll conducted by an online men's magazine comedian jon stewart is the most influential man in america after eleven years on the daily show how four million voters bumped him up to the number one spot and i would be concerned if it was they said larry the cable guy was the most trusted man in america so i feel like. one way of earning the trust has been confronting the mainstream media we need help from the media and they're doing us a sect into lies being spun by pundits taking over t.v. screens in america. are you know you don't think you're going to kill you doing are you how do you learn that border collies doing the learning. you. know. i do you know do you think it's dangerous well i wonder what
the letter would have to say about that. in the u.s. these days it is taking a comedian to show that the lack of trust in the media is what's causing programs ratings to crash i have privately amongst my friends and also an occasional nutrition television show. mentioned this show as being bad and you made the right choice you are leaving this place you know where you are you know the last guy out of a burning building. and you are so up and so comedian jon stewart became the most trusted man in america he calls crap like you sees it and always uses humor humor and simpler reasons to he's just a handsome man he's just a handsome trustworthy fellow but it's far from just the ladies appreciating the humor for the first time a sitting president has appeared on stewart's show just a couple of days before the midterm election democrats this year seem to be running
on. please baby one more chance. in the same poll stewart won the number one spot obama didn't even make the top twenty with tens of thousands of americans if not more headed to jon stewart's rally to restore sanity this weekend the fight for truth in media and in politicians is moving almost right into the homes of the political elite and even though stewart denies being a man of politics there is this idea out there that comedians do not have a personal political agenda but has one i can say that we do if the comedian were to push his agenda forward the most trusted man in america would have his followers join him which should be a scary thought for all those politicians media pundits and the rest of the establishment so far the way to earn trust with their own people. are your. people trust jon stewart because he questions power that's at least what jeff
cohen things he's a professor of journalism at its college. you know i don't know that he's the most influential but i think one of the reasons he's so popular is he is program is imbued with a small d democratic spirit that you look at people in power with skepticism you look at them. questioning what they're doing you have an attitude about them that's the democratic spirit that our country was founded on that we are all the laurels about the united states is this democratic spirit but when you look at the corporate mainstream media you see a lot of cozying up to power so i think the reason jon stewart in cold bear stick is they make fun of power they make fun of politicians and weren't portly they make fun of the media elite themselves. we are coming to you live from moscow this is our team now let's get a brief update on some other international headlines. in ewing into

hello and welcome to the business bulletin one of the world's top auto parts suppliers has opened its fifth plant in russia comes as is ramping up production here as more foreign carmakers are expanding their operations but as medina question of reports the relative lack of locally produced components is putting the brakes on the russian auto industry. that aborts bomb the radiator grills and other components that's what this newly built plan and the cougar region will produce and more importantly that's what the fast recovering russian call market lacks at the moment the kaluga plant is just one of the serious of russia projects run by magna in late september the canadian company also announced the opening of three plants in st petersburg the total investment into the kaluga project top seventy four million euros the plunge will manufacture components for folds fagging
school into renal and trying for certain products. so we still have to import. data for example from from outside. pretty sure this will change over time experts say this year global cop production could exceed pre-crisis levels with seventeen million vehicles rolling off the assembly lines russia will contribute about one point seven million to vote total by twenty eleven for many of this are simply a sample hand rather than build from scratch the biggest bottleneck for production in russia is the lack of social components there is plenty of manufacturing plants but the source of supply of world class quality components is pretty limited and a lot of the plants that have been set up a store importing a vast majority of components so now the big question really to consolidate the
restoration of the russian car industry the growth potential of the russian call market is such that x. prize believe more foreign manufacturers will be looking to set up joint ventures with domestic firms but as the industry here expands some kinks in the manufacturing process need to be are in apts analysts say russia needs to produce more high quality natural. components if it's to fulfill its potential as a base for foreign carmakers might in the question of business r.t. region russia would increase gas supplies to poland by as much as forty percent following the signing of a new agreement after only two years of negotiations and legal delays the deal has been sealed the outline of the contract was agreed in january this year but it then faced a long process to comply with european antitrust law that the prime minister igor sections of the talks in warsaw also included agreements in other areas of the energy sector. utica in the power industry we plan to export russian
